I know it's been a few years, but as Brian Clewer's son, I thought I should respond. Unfortunately Brian did most of his shows live for all the years he was on KFAC, and then when he switched to KSRF after KFAC stopped being classical he taped the shows for broadcast. Sad to say, he didn't get the tapes back from the station after the show ran, and if he did get them back, he'd re-record on the same tape so I don't have any of his old shows either, except for the last show he taped, I think. The tape is still sitting on his reel-to-reel recorder in his studio and I haven't been able to figure out how to get the equipment working. Some years ago we had a customer who had been recording his shows since the early 1970's and had hundreds of tapes but I don't have his contact information, just remember that he was in the Whittier area. Good luck and thank you for remembering Brian and the show. The Continental Shop still continues without him though.

Thanks so much for your responding. I do have some of one or two of Brians shows that I have recorded. One, I have converted to WAV format digitally. If you would like to have a copy Id be glad to send it over. As to the show on reel to reel I do have equipment and could likely do the same. As an expatriated Canadian stuck down here in the Colonies I grew up listening to BBC and CBC radio and have enjoyed British shows. When I stumbled upon Cynics Choice I had that warm feeling again. Brians delivery was friendly, relaxed. Like an old friend Id never met. Keep in touch.

Hi Mr. Clewer and BigSmith! Thank you for responding to these posts; I've been looking for these recording for a long time. I've recently made a Reddit post (http://redd.it/spj5y), in case you want to see what's going on there (not much, yet). BigSmith, would you be so kind as to send me your recording? My email address is arturj237@gmail.com. Best of luck to you all, and I will post again if I find anything out!
